The Academy for Lifelong Learning is a volunteer-run organization under the auspices of the University of South Carolina Aiken that provides Seniors in Aiken, SC and the entire Central Savannah River Area with a wide range of learning opportunities tailored to their needs and interests.

From its modest beginnings in 1989, the Academy has evolved into a multi-faceted program that provides area Seniors with a wide range of fun and educational opportunities.  Each semester the Academy offers short courses and events covering a broad span of interests, ranging from art, music, literature, and science to hobbies, cooking, current events, religion, and both local and broader ranging history.

The Fall 2018 catalog is anticipated early in August, and will be available from our CATALOG PAGE.
